Michelle Obama’s Inaugural Ball Dress, Designed by Project Runway!!

November 6, 2008

Ah. Let the Daily Beast come up with the craziest, wackiest Project Runway challenge ever. And it’s not even on the show!! The Daily Beast has asked some of Project Runway’s past designers to create an Inaugural Ball Dress for Michelle Obama. And that’s not even half of it. Let me excerpt from the article: 

“To help dream up the answer for America’s new fashion-forward first lady, we enlisted some of our favorite Project Runway designers to create Inaugural Ball gowns at once stylish, thrifty, and patriotic. But in keeping with the show’s premise, they didn’t get to skip off to Mood to buy their fabric. For this challenge, they were only allowed to use Laura Bush’s 2005 Inaugural Ball dress, to be chopped up and repurposed, à la Pretty in Pink; an American flag; burlap potato sacks; and $10 worth of trims of their choice.”

Wow. I knew this had to be interesting. Here’s the article: 
Do you like the designs? Or do they make you puke? Banter below!!
